!!! NEW SECTION… thanks for your patience !!!
Mallorca, Gran Canaria, Barcelona, Bilbao
It’s where live most of the year now… Spain ! We hop between the islands mostly but Barcelona is where we loved to visit over the years, and we lived there for a season some years ago. Bilbao, home of the Spanish tapas is a new favourite in recent years with it’s new renovation, the Guggenheim museum and of course the amazing tapas there ! It’s near enough to San Sebastian, the food capital of Spain, and the French border and the city of Bayonne. When we tour through France, we like to finish in Bayonne, and take a bus over the border to Bilbao, where can fly off to the Canary islands.
